A new international awards program has just been launched, celebrating the highest quality of architecture and interior design in the hospitality industry.

The Farmani Group's LIV Hospitality Design Awards is open to architects and interior designers around the world who have created incredible projects, including all kinds of housing accommodations and food & beverage outlets. LIV is an inclusive platform, pursuing exceptional projects within the living and eating spaces, from co-living to beach resorts, from fine dining restaurants to pop-up bars.

"We believe in the power of architecture and interior design to shape our lives, and that's why celebrating these achievements in the hospitality space is so important," explained Hossein Farmani, Founder of LIV Hospitality Design Awards and President of Farmani Group. "It was important for this awards program to be incredibly inclusive, since today's accommodations have never been more diverse - from short-term rentals to private housing, beach resorts, boutique hotels, campervans, and co-living. From cocktail bars to food courts, Michelin-starred establishments, food trucks, and private clubs, the food & beverage scene has also never been more exciting as it is today."

With 40 award categories in the living section and 24 categories in the eating section, LIV is one of the most comprehensive design competitions dedicated to hospitality. Selected by an esteemed jury of architects, designers, hoteliers, developers, and leaders in interior design and architectural fields, eight winning titles are granted to professionals and students per year for The Best of International Hospitality Design, Architecture, and Guest Experience. The 34 jury members will be specifically looking for new concepts, innovations, sustainability, impacts, designs, shapes, and stories.

The LIV Hospitality Design Awards 2020 will close on March 31, 2021;  the annual winners will receive the LIV trophy, be invited to the winner's celebration evening, extensive publicity showcasing their designs and project to an international audience, and more.
